"It seemed irresistible to talk to Karen Malpede about the provocative Prophecy which begins previews May 29 and runs until June 20." 
       –Leonard Jacobs, The Clyde Fitch Report
“The play is a thing of beauty. And the unfairness of war to all variety of parties, from those creating it, to those hit by it, to those trying to undo it, to those trying to avoid it, is built into this drama in a manner that reminds me of how James Baldwin dealt with the unfairness of racism.”
–David Swanson,
